Really odd investment strategy at this investment trust; to be honest it's rubbish and most investors with a stroke of common sense could do better. If I was John Duffield and had a personal £25-30m earning nothing for 10 years or so, I would have taken some action. Pretty unbelievable when you have made your living creating Jupiter and New Star and you can't find someone that can invest £50m sensibly. Then again maybe that was the problem with Jupiter and New Star - to clever for their own good and a general lack of common sense. I can't find one Jupiter vehicle that I would want to invest in. Maybe New Star was the same! What gets me is the schizophrenic investment behaviour of the manager - 90% in eclectic funds and 10% in very very random equity investments. They lost over £2m in Bumi which is just unreal when it was their only material equity last year. Why put all of your equity risk into one risky vehicle...and we all know how that's turned out...very badly! This year they seem to have invested in All Star Leisure and Westhouse Holdings (who? and why?). There is no logic or strategy that makes sense to me, other than insanity or lack of focus. Please John find a better manager...I and many others could do substantially better than the so-called professionals that are "managing" this trust.

Another set of poor results for New Star. Not exactly a great "shop window" for Brompton Asset Management. This needs a shake-up.

It will be interesting to see what John Duffield decides to do with this vehicle. A liquidation would generate some serious upside I suppose which would be most welcome, or they could use this vehicle for something more ambitious. Happy to wait as at least the investment manager is protecting real shareholder value, in terms of NAV.

topvest - still watching this? having been kicked out of the all share, surely on the level of discount it is on, with trackers forced sellers, this is time to buy....

good estate planning for him long term if shares remain on a 25% + discount!

Well, results out today and no hint of excitement at all. Languishing on a poor relative performance, no dividend and a c20-30% discount, something may well change. The trust doesn't seem to let any emotion / sense of direction out of the bag, so we will just have to wait and see what Duffield wants to do.

Yes, odd. Interesting vehicle this one though if Duffield decides to use it.

shares are being marked much lower this week. underlying holdings are broadly unit trusts and look very dull but liquid. Hence there should be no particular reason for such a wide discount, other than there being one large shareholder and no liquidity in the trust!

All very quiet on here + a big discount. Wouldn't be surprised if we get a change of strategy at some point this year + a change of name.

The price has picked up a fair bit here. I wonder if a change of direction is on the cards?

Shows how illiquid this is with a 5,000 purchase causing the rise.

Missed this: "On 30 October 2009 the Company announced that it has given notice to terminate New Star Asset Management Limited's appointment as its Investment Manager. Termination will occur on 31 January 2010 or earlier by agreement. On termination, Brompton Asset Management LLP will commence acting as the Company's Investment Manager." Off we go on a new course. Be interesting to see what Brompton get up to.

Results passed by without much noise. Two observations on the accounts: - The future and the relationship with New Star Henderson is avoided; and - The accounts are missing the NSH logo's, quite unlike any other New Star or Henderson set of accounts. What does this mean? In my view, something strategic is going to happen to this company, probably sooner rather than later. Still at a massive discount which limits the downside. Anyone else any thoughts?

Results anytime soon. It will be interesting to see what is planned for this former New Star IT. On a fairly sizeable discount. John Duffield controls, and is to my knowledge his only remaining listed vehicle.
